Oh! How my heart feels for
The martyrs who died at Uri!
Oh! How gruesome the attacks
That killed our fellow beings!
Who are we to decide others’ fate?
Aren’t we aware that we are creatures
And it is he who decides
What our life’s worth should be?
Have we become so inhuman
That we don’t feel the pain of others?
Have we become so cruel
As to take others’ life for nought?
Who is to be blamed? Parents?
Education? No, it is we.
We ought to be responsible
For each other’s life as well as ours.
